Scout’s training has been slowly progressing and we’re finding it helpful in general. He now knows: sit (lay) down spot (as in, “go to your spot” / place training) paw / other paw stay recall is getting pretty strong (come) starting to get the hang of leash walking We recently started working with a professional trainer with him. He helped us with paw, strengthening stay, recall, and leash walking so far.
So I recently added some “catch-up” posts about Scout and an album for him. But it’s now about 2 months in. I just need to say, raising a puppy is exhausting. The “Puppy Blues” are a real thing. He is progressing and learning new things and of course has his moments of supreme sweetness, but I definitely thought this was going to be a bit easier than it has been.
